If you have been to Starbucks and tried their banana bread, you must agree that their banana bread is super moist. I love the texture and the taste. It is not too sweet and the banana flavor is just right!

So I have been experimenting a lot with banana bread. I have tried making banana bread with coconut oil and melted butter. I have also tried making Banana Chiffon Cake which gives a different texture.

This time I would try making banana bread with sour cream. And I am going to use a lot of bananas!

Here is the recipe!

  • If you don’t have sour cream at home, you can use plain yoghurt as substitute.
  • You can add walnut slices on the top or in the batter to give it a twist.
  • After 20 minutes in the oven, the batter start to form a crust, you can put banana slices or walnut pieces to decorate. They won’t sink because of the crust. Continue baking afterwards.


Keep the banana bread in a closed container in the chiller. It can stay fresh for up to 5 days. If frozen, it can stay fresh until one month.
